I Could Say This, But I Won'tA Poem by Gary McDonald
I could say your eye is a leaf
that falls from the branch, but flies in the wind
I could say this, but I won't.
As no words can carry fair weight
to purge the emptiness from my soul
you will only ever hear me say, I love you.
It may be that you need me to show you
or even just to tell you every day
these words are all I say, I love you.
The chocolate syrup dripping from your eyes
swims to your smile's side, to taste you
I could say this, but I won't
For all the days you're by my side
and all the nights of starry skies
I shall only ever say, I love you in every way.
